Aged Bark is a triple shredded natural mulch that has been aged for a year or more before it is distributed. This mulch can make your landscaping more colorful, more beautiful, and is more beneficial for your plants and it stays in place on steep applications. Aged Bark can be used on your flower beds, around your trees and shrubs, on walkways, in playgrounds, or anywhere you can think of to use one of nature's most versatile and abundant materials - bark - for your benefit. By applying natural mulch on top of your plant soil, you protect your plant's delicate roots from excessive heat and drought in summer.
Mulching with natural ground hardwood also helps improve your soils' texture by enriching it with natural humus. Natural hardwood mulch can improve the drainage of heavy clay soils and improves the water-holding capacity of sandy soils. And it won't crust, blow away, or wash away if properly applied.
This product is available in 2 ft³ and by the cubic yard. One cubic yard is a front-end loader scoop, visually though the volume is about the same as a large bathtub.
Mulch & Bark Yield Information & Calculation
The initial application of two (2)-inch layer of mulch can save you yard-maintenance time. Because it smothers weeds, you do less weeding and you won't have to trim grass along borders. It reduces evaporation so you won't need to water as often. Another advantage of bark mulch is that it breaks the force of rain which prevents mud splattering on the side of your house. Mulch will last 3 to 6 years after your initial application and needs only the addition of a minimum amount of new material each year to maintain the proper depth of 2 inches and renew that rich brown color.
